Ramburuth disputed that surfing porn was to blame for the high mobile data bill, explaining that it was a result of software updates.

/enter obligatory hardware joke here

Can't give someone free internet and not expect porn. Also how do they know it was porn? Wouldn't that be invasion of privacy?

Your internet surfing on company time and equipment may be investigated. It is not an invasion of privacy...it says so in the IT policy of most companies.

I condemn the use of tax payer money for visiting porn sites. He should have used his own sim

This raises a question though; how does a revelation such as this one tie up with previous claims of invasion of privacy ?

Ahh, @Garson007 beat me to it :)

Does the law make provision for such policies?

It's company resources.

Will be interesting to know.

If I use my own sim and equipment, and my company suddenly want to inspect my equipment, I can tell them to take a hike - unless they've got a court order specifying exactly what they want to look for. Sticky situation.

This is why I keep personal and business emails totally separate. So those emails with boob pixx is in my personal emails, and not in the work's emails... No contravention of company policy...
